Chimanimani & meetlist for 2018

Hello everyone,
We are planning a trip to the Chimanimani mountains in Zimbabwe at the end of September 2018.
The first priority is to explore the newly discovered Tartarus Cave. A huge sinkhole entrance only briefly explored with no end in sight!
There are also many unexplored surface fissures and various boulder chokes deep underground which need to be pushed.
Lastly, there is an easy to open blowing hole at the bottom of Mawenge Mwena, the deepest cave in Southern Africa. Could this blowing hole lead down another 300 meters to the resurgances?
There is plenty of planning needed for this expedition, so even though it is months away, please let me know if you are interested.
For the rest of 2017 and first half of 2018:
A trip is done once a month on the second Sunday of the month. Extra trips are done on an ad-hoc basis and a few long-weekend trips to other provinces and countries are also organized throughout the year.
There will also be rescue practises every second month.
